The certification process has been utilised to clarify the business process for the employees and it served as a texture for the continual improvement of products and production processes. Apart from that, those processes have only been restricted up to their basic lines, so there is still enough flexibility to respond promptly to specific demands and needs of our customers.
The management of IHC Piping considers the quality management system as a useful tool to pursue the chosen way of professionalising and constantly improving itself in an energetic way.
